This enables all stakeholders to move beyond simply sharing threat information and instead advance efforts to manage risk in a targeted and prioritizes manner.
The National Risk Management portfolio includes the Supply Chain Risk Management, National Critical Functions, election security, 5G, the Pipeline Cybersecurity Initiative, and cross sector risk management. If you like to collect, collate, and analyze information, this mission is for you!
